Thursday 29th December 2011….a great day!!

Started out with tennis at 9am with Lauren 2 hours of singles which was really good…..back home at Casita Doris and time for lunch and an hour of reading out on the sun roof.

Sara is coming to SMA end of January for a couple of months and she has asked me to look for an apartment for her so I went to look at one this afternoon and it was lovely so she will have to decide if she wants me to reserve it for her it is close to the Centro which is what she wanted her school is close by.

3pm I was at Casa Hogar and for the first time able to take the girls out sadly for me Paola is with her Mother for a week so Daniela got to pick a friend and she choose Suzy, who is a lovely girl the same age as Daniela.

It was just a great feeling to walk out with them and know I had them for a while on my own…we walked a while and then took a taxi I had intended to take them to the park but they told me they missed lunch and were hungry so change of plans we came back to Casita Doris….I asked them what they wanted but I knew the answer before they even said they wanted

After tennis this morning I put my gear outside to dry off…don’t they look so funny????

We then walked back a ways then got a taxi back to CH…when I have them I make sure they always say thanks to the taxi driver and he was amazed and just smiled…..I told the Madres that the girls had been really good and I hope to take then to the hot springs on Saturday!!

Here are some photos that my good friend and resident CH photographer Jorge took at the show on Tuesday!!!

These girls and all the happenings at Casa Hogar make me feel so humble and every little thing you do for them is returned ten fold  over with smiles and kindness!!!!

Today is the special birthday for my only Uncle…….Bram I wish you many more Happy Birthday’s………my Dad would be proud to know that you are still so active and healthy and happy love both you and Auntie Rita!!!!

Time for tea, cookies and a movie!!!!!
